TV Junkie: A Very Sunny Night in Philadelphia; John Oliver Scores
"It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia: A Very Sunny Christmas" is out on DVD and Bu-ray this week
Unfettered by even the somewhat lax broadcasting rules of basic cable, there's more swearing, gore, and just plain bad behavior in this twisted take on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. As a TV bonus tonight, the "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" cast appears on "Free Radio" on Comedy Central at midnight.
Congrats to our friend John Oliver who scored a new show, "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show", to begin broadcasting on Comedy Central January 8th at 11pm. Featured comedians include: Janeane Garofalo, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Brian Poseh, Nick Kroll and Kristen Schaal [Click the links to see our interviews with them]
